    Thank you for this post. As of yet there is no viable solution on the horizon for us students. I found the 9/27/12 comment of Michael Jackson, MSN(c), RN, CEN, MICN, California Board of Registered Nursing to be very informative: “…This is going to have to be handled between the two schools and amongst the students…It’s going to have to be handled with them legally…Thank you students for bringing your information forward, and I say don’t stop here – keep going!”

    I am very frustrated having wasted my time and money. I don’t see a solution yet they are still advertising I only went as far as the college network but had Indiana State not had the relationship

    With the College Network I wouldn’t of even entertained them. I later found out the College Network is merely a book publishing company. What a complete waste of time and hard earned money!

    As an on campus nursing student at ISU. I have seen several of the students come to Indiana to complete their clinical hours. It may not be the ideal situation for all of the students but at least ISU is trying to get the students the required clinical hrs. for each class.

      Perhaps you are made of money, do not have a family or even a job for that matter– distance learning students take online programs for a reason. Would you travel half way across the country to complete a clinical on your own dime because the university screwed you? Presently they HAVE secured TWO clinical sites for the ENTIRE state of California. Of course they allowed everyone to enroll in clinical courses under the promise that they were securing clinical sites. Yeah, two sites. Seriously. They expect students to travel ridiculous distances because it is the best they can do… and if you cannot, well you have no other option, you must drop the course, without a refund. Who doesn't love throwing time and money to the wind?

    California is a JOKE when it comes to a BSN program. The classes they want students to take aren't real life classes that will transfer into becoming good nurses. For instance, bio medical statistics. Or sociology 100. How about teaching a class that helps nurses not mix up medications. Not neglect their patients. And as for the multicultural class requirement, please.There is nothing in the multicultural class that honors German, Irish, Dutch, Asian or any other race but we sure hear a lot about some guy that wants to be a woman or a black or mexican.

    We had a home health LVn who didn't even know how to apply oxygen or do an IM injection, so obviously the curriculum is bunk

    Home health LVN that doesn't know how to do basic nursing 101 skills is scary. I've worked home health and you need to have confidence and know your skills. I signed up for college network and studied for 2 subjects and failed both test, I don't know how they were not hard. I researched more and heard so many complaints and how classes weren't transferable and so. Nightmare and biggest mistake I made and lost $6,000.00. They take your money and don't care.

    Why on earth would California require nursing students to take Biomedical statistics and Microbiology? Nurses will NEVER be interpreting lab results. Nor will they be doing research. HELLLLOOOOOO waste of time! How about making learning another language part of curriculum. This is obviously a money maker for schools and people who write the books. Who at California Board of Nursing makes these decisions? They should be fired for ignorance.

    • Hank September 16, 2014 at 8:40 pm

      I don’t think you know what nurses do. Nurses HAVE to know what those lab results mean so they can make an informed decision to remedy it be it by administering PRN meds or treatments or to call a physician. I hope when you get admitted to a hospital that you have a knowledgeable and well-trained nurse to look after you
